Abstract: We prove that if $ f\colon X\to Z$ is a smooth surjective morphism between projective manifolds and if $ -K_X$ is semi-ample, then $ -K_Z$ is also semi-ample. This was conjectured by Fujino and Gongyo. We list several counterexamples to show that this fails without the smoothness assumption on $ f$.

We prove the above result by proving some results concerning the moduli divisor of the canonical bundle formula associated to a klt-trivial fibration $ (X,B)\to Z$.
